    Dissapointing

    I stayed at this hotel some years ago when it was called Villas del Sol and I loved it. I was planning a trip back to Zihuatanejo and decided on this hotel primarily because I read good things about a major renovation to the property by Thompson Hotels. Major disappointment. The renovation can hardly be seen, other than superficial decorations that actually detract from the property as it now feels like just another chain hotel. The service in particular was a major source of dissatisfaction. I’ve stayed at great resorts in Mexico of the same price range and attentive, friendly, professional service is something you can rely on. Food and beverage service by the Thompson staff was particularly dissatisfying as it usually came with an almost brusque demeanor. On one particular occasion I made a comment to one of the staff pointing out that this used to be a great hotel and felt it had gone downhill, and all he did was agree with me saying “I know, it’s not the same anymore.” Wow! I don’t feel the resort has good value. It’s a shame really because the property used to great. Disappointed in Thompson management. Next time I will look elsewhere because Mexico has great options in this price range.

    Visiting the Paradise

    Great hotel in a wonderful beach. The facilities were excellent and very exclusive! They have all the security measures for COVID. The food at the restaurant was delicious! They have a very nice non crowed beach and the people who attended us were very gentle. It was a great experience!

    Amazing Stay in Zihua

    Such a great resort! Everyone was amazing - from front desk staff to everyone on the beach/restaurants. The rooms were really comfortable, clean and well maintained. The food by the beach is actually reasonably priced (obviously much more than eating in town) and actually really good and lots of healthy options. The security team even pulled grabbed us while walking to a restaurant nearby at night to watch a turtle lay its eggs, and shared other local tips, etc. Such a relaxing and special experience. Highly recommend the swim up suites - no better way to start your day then to have coffee on your balcony and jump right into the pool.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Hello! I have been there six times! It’s the third time they change ownership! The facility is to die for however I miss the previous ownership! They need more waiters! The waiters they have are the best in Mexico! The food was delicious however I miss the Mexican traditional food they use to have! Our favorite thing to do at the hotel was to watch sports on the pool when we walked in on Thursday there was no tv I had to ask for them to put it up which they did! What o lovea about this hotel is service!!!!!! No other hotel has it as good as this one! I feel they could do more with there beautiful facility! Miss the ping pong table! They need to re open the restaurant behind the tv pool! The massages on the beach are amazing had one every day!
